THE COMFORT OF PRINCIPLE

From the March 1919 issue of The Christian Science Journal


WHEN men spoke of comfort originally they meant distinctly that which enabled them to be strong together, as when a garrison sorely forfought receives aid and strengthening, not only because of actual reserves, but because of the heartening such fresh helpers bring. It is in this light that we understand that phrase describing treason as giving "aid and comfort" to the enemy.
